i say...whatever your rifle shoots the best. My XS likes the 150s and will not stabilize a 180 at all. so my vote is for 150.
There is always that consideration. But for the sake of the poll we're just assuming that if all other things are equal, what's the best weight? And I know bullet construction varies greatly within any given weight (i.e, a 150 can be either a Barnes X or a Win. Power-Point) but just consider your preferred style bullet and then pick your favorite weight.
YO your right you got me. Yes I hunt bear with my 300 rum 180 gr. but i
